Geo-IP URLs

What is a Geo-IP URL?

When a user accesses one of the MeL eResources using one of these Geo-IP URL links, it will check to see if the user is coming from a registered IP address (on the vendor end), then check to see if a user is within Michigan (based on their IP address). View the MeL eResources Access page for detailed information.

  • If a user is coming from either a registered IP address or from within Michigan, then they will be allowed to access the resource.
  • If the user isn't seen as coming from Michigan, then in most cases, the user will be directed to authenticate using a valid Michigan driver's license number or an official State of Michigan ID card number (available at any Secretary of State's office for Michigan residents who are non-drivers).
  • Patrons of participating MeLCat libraries may enter their library barcode numbers.
  • There will be instances of users from within Michigan being prompted to log in with that Michigan driver's license/state ID or MeLCat library barcode page as not all everyone within Michigan is seen as coming from a Michigan IP address.

These links will only count towards an individual library's statistics for the EBSCO eResources as long as the vendor has those IP addresses registered on their end.

 

Contact MeL eResources Support Staff (meldatabaseshelp@mcls.org) for more details. To register or report any additions or changes to your library's IP address, use the IP Reporting Form.
